To do his part in Sunday's Boot Breast Cancer day presented by Ohio Health, Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum will wear a pink jersey to raise awareness for the disease. The cause hits home for the Crew 'keeper.
"It actually means a lot to me," Gruenebaum explained Friday. "My grandma battled breast cancer before she passed away. She was very sick and very brave. It means a lot to me and I'm sure it means a lot to everybody."
The goalie continued, "Every year, I contribute to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and try to run in the races if I can. It's great that MLS takes part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month each year."
Kickoff is slated for 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.
